'Like grandfather, like grandson': Prince Harry's resemblance to young Prince Philip in this vintage photo
One cannot miss their matching pale blue eyes, red beards and smiles.
Tributes continue to pour in for Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburg, who died on April 9 at the age of 99. A vintage photo of Prince Philip on the cover of Paris Match 1975 has gone viral for a rather unusual reason - it looks like that of Prince Philip at a first glance. The photo was shared by Chris Jackson, a royal family photographer, on Instagram.
"I was reminded today of this incredible vintage @parismatch_magazine from 1957 I acquired a few years ago. I was blown away the minute I spotted it. It always reminds me of the unique, historic reference points that Royal photography provides. The front cover features a fantastically suave Prince Philip on tour with The Queen," Jackson captioned the photo.
Jackson also shared images from inside the magazine.
Paris Match magazine also posted the picture alongside Harry's and wrote, "Like grandfather, like grandson."
One cannot miss their matching pale blue eyes, red beards and smiles. The similarities aren't just in their looks. Prince Philip joined the Royal Navy in 1939 and served during WWII. Prince Harry served in the Army for 10 years and was deployed twice to Afghanistan.
The uncanny resemblance between Philip who was around 36 years old at the time when the photo was clicked and Prince Harry, also 36, has grabbed the eyeballs of social media users.
One user said, "I thought it was Harry." Another wrote, "Harry looks soooo much like his grandfather!!"
A third user commented, "I’ve always thought Harry resembles this grandfather, and this photo is proof why." Yet another posted, "Totally did a double take thinking it was Harry."
